    Hi, I have some cockerels and they started to crow from about 7 weeks and are now in full flow at 14 weeks. They are are also starting to tread. What age is a pekin likely to be fertile? (bearing in mind they need to get the technique right first).

    Also, what age will my girls be ready to go with the cockerels?

    Thank you:)
